Fr. Eddy has been assigned as Pastor in Fortuna.
“Familiarity breeds contempt.” When Jesus claimed
that He had come from heaven, that He is the true
bread of life and who eats of Him will never be hungry,
it was hard for the Jews to believe. Though they had
witnessed the miracle of the multiplication of loaves
and fish, they knew His parents and the place where
He was born and raised. For them “He was one of
us.” They couldn’t accept His claim that He had come
down from heaven. This was the challenge of those
Jews: they could not see Christ’s divinity.They saw
Him as man and not as God.
In the contemporary world there is another type of
familiarity…those who challenge the real presence of
Jesus in the bread and wine. For them it is just
ordinary bread and wine. They fail to see the Divine
presence of Christ in the consecrated host and wine.
Only through the gift of faith can we go beyond what
appears to the eyes and believe in the Divinity.
We can also fall into the pitfall of another type of
‘familiarity that breeds contempt.’  We go to Holy
Mass and receive the Eucharist again and again. It is
a beautiful thing, but it can become a matter of routine
or habit. We tend to forget the wonder of this
marvelous mystery. Each time we receive the
Eucharist, we should strive to receive with freshness
like when we received it on our
First Holy Communion day.
Mother Teresa, now a saint, displayed these words in
the sacristy of their every community “Celebrate mass
and receive the Eucharist as if it is your first and last.”

God bless you.       -  Fr. Bernard D’Sa
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of
the world."
